    It is our duty to help Pakiistan in their hour of need.Pakinstan helped Sri Lanka in defeating terrorism.As gratitude,Sri Lanka should send these doctors without delay.

    Sri lankens should be very sympathetic towards Pakistan. But Paks are bombing each others. So Doctors should be very careful, because they are very precious citizons. They should ask proper insurance coverage from GOSL.

    Charity should begin at home.

    Is it retribution or just coincidence that all countries that helped Sri Lanka in the war with accussations of crimes against humainity to its own citizens are facing natural calamities?

    Saradial Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:49 AM

    great humanity beyond the borders! Pakistan also helped us in War and Tsunami.

    Leela Monday, 02 August 2010 09:50 PM

    neomal Monday, 02 August 2010 04:50 PM

    Helping friendly nations is a good thing. Pakistan, too, has helped us, in many ways, in times of crisis.

    Sicillian Monday, 02 August 2010 04:17 PM

    Remember Pakistan helped us during the war.

    Janaka Monday, 02 August 2010 03:41 PM
